A Panic Button is designed specifically to be used during emergencies to alert individuals about a dangerous situation.
It enables those first at the scene to publish an urgent message directly from their mobile or desktop PC, targeted to any employees at risk.
These urgent notifications override all other applications – including locked screens. This means employees will be able to see the emergency message regardless of what app they’re working in, and therefore made aware of a developing crisis.
A Panic Button enables organizations to act quickly and minimize threat when an unexpected event occurs. It works by triggering a full-screen emergency alert to employees' computer screens, mobile devices and large display screens.
Also known as an emergency mass notification, the unmissable Panic Button solution saves valuable time. You can create a series of pre-configured emergency notifications in advance. Simply load these anticipated scenarios into your SnapComms content manager, ready to broadcast in times of duress.
At the press of a button from your phone or computer (using the SnapComms app), you can immediately initiate a company-wide announcement, alerting staff and providing instructions, without delay.
Detailed reporting shows which employees have seen the notification. If required, the emergency alert can be repeatedly sent until you are sure all those at risk have been notified. You can also request staff to confirm they are OK - for example, during a severe weather event or active shooter incident.
